A quantum computer able to do useful classical computing (i.e., factoring large numbers) would have to have a large number of bits (512-1024, very far away by any metric). A quantum computer able to do simulations of quantum systems beyond what current supercomputers could do would have to have maybe 10 bits (maybe not too far away).
